Rovers ended a three-match losing run last time out as they claimed a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City in the Championship. Bradley Dack’s effort just after the restart proved to be the difference in a keenly contested encounter. Blackburn Rovers have also earned some decent results on their recent travels, beating the likes of Middlesbrough and Hull City. However, they remain suspect defensively with just one clean sheet in their last five away matches. How the bookies view it Despite their recent struggles, Norwich City are still considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 5/6 with Coral.
